Founder and Managing Director Mr Raymond W Smith formed Powertec in 1995 after he recognised a need in the Australian telecommunications landscape for a low cost landline to mobile solution provider.
From humble beginnings in 1995 as a one-man team on the Gold Coast, the company has grown into an international operation with offices in NSW, Victoria, WA, QLD, NT and New Zealand.
The driving force behind the development of the business is to deliver individuals and businesses with solutions to help stay connected.
Powertec wireless communication products and solutions aim to make a difference in people’s lives and ensure that they can communicate and be connected no matter where they may be.
The products Powertec offer are intelligent, reliable and durable for optimal connectivity and best possible performance.
Through a commitment with its partners and manufacturers, Powertec has secured exclusive distributorship in Australia and New Zealand for many complementary products that have attracted over 2,000 resellers and retailers, local and international.
In 2012, the company teamed up with Nextivity Inc. – a leading developer of cellular coverage technology – becoming the Australia Pacific distributor of Cel-Fi mobile smart repeaters; a first of its kind consumer product to be approved by all mobile carriers in Australia and New Zealand.
Powertec’s product reliability and onboard intelligence is the reason their network continues to grow and they are able to offer effective wireless coverage and technology solutions in addition to products that work in harmony with cellular networks.
Powertec has a full Sales and Marketing department, IT and Tech Support team, as well as Administration support.
Powertec today supplies mobile carriers, large multinational companies, government departments, defence, emergency services, small to medium sized businesses and individuals with its breadth of hardware solutions enhancing the ability to communicate.
We believe in a world where everyone can communicate and be connected no matter where they may be.
